A little Sunshine for your Weekend

The other day I bought a mixed bouquet of  Alstromeria at Trader Joes.
I came home and put them in the pitchers that I had miniature cypress in at Christmas time.

The next morning I came into my kitchen and the sun was just streaming through the flowers. It looked so warm to me and it made me think of all my blogging friends that are in the ice, snow and freezing temperatures, so I thought I would send you some sunshine and flowers.

This week I got three emails from three very talented and sweet bloggers giving me the Stylish Blogger Award!!!  Wow! You can only imagine my surprise and delight!!!

All three of these ladies are designers with impeccable taste and wonderful blogs, so be sure and visit them, and tell them Kathysue sent you.

These kind ladies are:

Mary Ann from the blog Classic Casual Home

Linda from the blog  The Lennox

Darcy from The I design box blog

Can you believe it?!!!

The rules are to tell you, seven things about myself, and to pass this on to 10 other stylish bloggers.

Seven Things About Kathysue:

1.) I love God, Family,Friends and Country deeply.

2.) I fell in love with my husband when I was 16 going on 17.  Remember that song from, “The Sound Of Music?”  That is the movie we went to see on our very first date and needless to say, I sang that song all day the next day in my head and sometimes out loud to my friend's dismay. We got married in the third month of the year, March!

3.)  The other good, actually BEYOND good thing that happened to me in three’s was the birth of my three son’s, one at a time of course!!

4.)  My favorite number is , you guessed it, “3!”

5.)  I have a quirk. I can not stand anything to be on my kitchen breakfast bar.  I also have to have my faucet straight and pointed towards the middle
of the sink, not to the left nor to the right!! I told you they were quirks!!

6.) I am a hummer!! Yes, I hum when I work, I hum when I play, I just hum. I have been told that it is a sign of a happy person. I use to get notes sent home with my boys from their teachers telling me they hummed. I never corrected them for that, I love a hummer!!!

7.) I worked for a designer in my late 20’s and then started my own decorating consultation business in my early 30’s.

Do you see a pattern of #3's in my life?

Now for the realllly hard part for me. I am suppose to give  ten bloggers the stylish blog award.  That would be impossible for me. I have so many wonderfully stylish blogger friends I am afraid I can not limit it to Ten.

So I am changing the rules a little bit (I hope the blogging officials don’t mind!) I am going to suggest  three new blogs that I discovered this past week  while I was blog hopping. I think you all will really enjoy reading these blogs .

Here they are! Be sure to go and visit these great blogs.  I know you will be impressed, I was.
